Here in Central Florida these are native, they grow on the sides of the roads near ditches. Here they seem to prefer morning sun, then high or dappled shade the rest of the day. They also seem to prefer consistently moist soil. We use them in our landscape along w/ hybrid members of the Lamiaceae family.
